Most people come here for the proximity to Big Mountain and Glacier National Park . In fact, that’s why most of the local people ended up here. It’s the sort of place a skier or avid outdoors person moves to.
Surprisingly enough, Whitefish  has a Frank Lloyd Wright building, but only the most fervid architectural buff would find it particularly interesting. It’s on Central Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets and looks like any old one-story modern office building, currently housing insurance offices and opticians.
The old Great Northern Depot is styled along the same lines as the Glacier Park chalet hotels. It is currently used by Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Amtrak, and also houses the Stumptown Historical Museum (500 Depot St., 406/862-0067, www.stumptownhistoricalsociety.org , 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Mon.–Sat., free). It’s definitely worth a stop for a browse.
